An equestrian portrait of a Man Singh of Jodhpur
Opaque watercolor and gold on paper, Jodhpur, circa 1800
The ruler restrains his charged stallion in anticipation of the hunt. Dressed in a fine white jama and adorned with modest jewels, he carries a spear against his shoulder. The forward attendant's leg breaks the frame to provide further urgency to the scene.
